It is not only about big data, but about everything related to high surge in resources – storage, memory, bandwidth, computational power:

To be continued

We will try to show the role of analytics from a few perspectives :

  1. the start-up challenges in collecting data and analyze it – what is relevant or not
  2. options in handling data, SAAS companies offering products just for it
  3. our customer’s interest in analyzing data we collect for them – reports or reports correlated with free data
  4. our internal day-by-day collected data in monitoring our cloud services – use & abuse
  5. an example of our customer’s effort in trying to capture the behavior of their employees or analyzing asset utilization
